Wilderness Retreat

Wilderness Retreat

Event is not currently scheduled

A perfect escape from fast paced digital life.

Our expert guides will take you out into the wilderness of the Scottish Highlands to enjoy the beauty of mountain, forest, river and sea. We will give you the space to regenerate and heal from your busy lives while seeking out beautiful nature spots where your body, mind and soul can be realigned and nourished. Here is a unique opportunity to relax and rejuvenate in a world renowned ecovillage and spiritual community while being immersed in nature and mindfully exercising your body. There are opportunities for meditation and yoga interspersed with adventures into the wild landscape, consciously re-connecting us with nature. While away from your everyday lives we invite you to set aside your digital connectivity, breathe the fresh air, walk, forage, get on the water and cook on campfires. Findhorn is situated on a peninsula with an expansive beach and bay to enjoy and is at the heart of some of the best outdoor adventure in the UK.

While in nature there will be opportunities to explore our relationship with the multitude of interconnected ecological communities that we are a part of and depend upon. Consciously inviting the cycles in nature to act as a mirror on our inner journeys and offering useful insights into our lives. Returning with a strengthened relationship with the wild, within and without.

The Findhorn Ecovillage community provides comfortable accommodation, vegetarian meals, meditation spaces, a sauna and a hot tub under the stars. Let the healing powers of mountain, forest, river and sea work their magic on your mind, body and spirit.
